MILLICENT KENDRICK;

OR,

THE SEARCH AFTER HAPPINESS. |

BY

EMMA JANE WORBOISE,
| AUTHOR OF “ KINGSDOWN LODGE," "WIFE'S TRIALS AND TRIUMPHS,”

ETC., ETC.

Thou art the source and centre of all minds,
Their only point of rest : Eternal Word !
From Thee departing they are lost, and rove
At random, without honour, hope, or peace.
From Thee is all that soothes the life of man,
His high endeavour, and his glad success,
His strength to suffer, and his will to serve.
But, 0 Thou bounteous Giver of all good,
Thou art, of all Thy gifts, Thyself the crown :
Give what Thou can'st, without Thee we are poor;
And with Thee rich, take what Thou wilt away.

COWPER-The Task.
